Synopsis:
After eight years in prison, twenty-four year old Jordan Kane is the man everyone loves to hate.

Forced to return to his hometown while on parole, Jordan soon learns that this small town hasn’t changed since he was sent away. He is the local pariah, shunned by everyone, including his own parents. But their hatred of him doesn’t even come close to the loathing he feels every time he looks in the mirror.

Working odd jobs for the preacher lady, Jordan bides his time before he can leave this backwards town. But can time or distance erase the pain of living?

Torrey Delaney is new in town, and certainly doesn’t behave in a way the locals believe a preacher’s daughter should. Her reputation for casual hook-ups and meaningless sex quickly spreads. And that’s on top of her budding friendship with the hardened ex-con handyman—the good Reverend is less than thrilled with her estranged daughter’s path.

As friendship forms, can two damaged people who are afraid to love take their relationship to the next level? Can Torrey live with Jordan’s demons, and can Jordan break through Torrey’s walls? With the disapproval of a small town weighing heavily on them, they struggle to find their place in the world. Can they battle the odds, or will their world be viciously shattered?

Is love a life sentence?


Question for the author:

If you were able to time travel to any place and any time, when and where would you travel, and why?

Answers:

Stonehenge, late Stone Age, and ask WHY?

I’d ask Napoleon what scared him so badly when he spent a night in the Great Pyramid in Egypt.

I’d tell the people who lived in Pompeii to get the hell out of Dodge.

I’d draw a map of El Dorado and put x marks the spot.

I’d ask Jane Austen to tell me the plot of ‘Sanditon’, her unfinished novel. Or better still, dictate it to me.

I’d tell Shakespeare that the romances and tragedies would be better for his career, and that with the exception of Henry V and Richard III, not to write all those boring history plays because they’d be used to torture school kids for centuries after.

I’d go back to my first year in college and tell myself not to date David Dickhead and explain that just because a guy is pre-med, it doesn’t mean he knows jack shit about anatomy.

And I’d back up the hour’s work I did on ‘Lifers’ when I was writing the first draft … before my computer crashed.

About the author:
I started writing contemporary romance two years ago. Before that, I didn’t think I could write a sex scene.

Turns out I can!

My lucky number is 13 because I was born on the 13th and live near a haunted castle by the ocean. My number one past-time is watching hot surfers get changed into (and out of) their wetsuits.

My husband doesn’t read my books. My mother does.

Writing is my love, my hobby, my total addiction. All my characters are important to me and whisper their stories, even when I’ve finished writing their books. That’s why you’ll often find bonus chapters/out-takes from various books, because those voices just won’t be quiet.

Readers can find bonus chapters for several of my books on my website www.janeharveyberrick.com

  1. If I could time travel I sure would have a hard time deciding where to go to! I could spend my life time visiting times in history. Oh, what a dream! Thanks for hosting a tour stop Ashley!
